Twitter has bowed to user pressure and released an upgrade which will allow reaction gifs to be added to retweets.

Currently, you had to use boring old words to describe your feelings when sharing someone else’s post.

But now you can just upload a gif instead.

The social network demonstrated the feature by, well, adding a gif to a retweet from a user called @KaleshQueen.

‘Dear @Twitter, waiting for the day we can retweet with GIF comments,’ she wrote.

Twitter’s social team then did exactly this, sharing Kalesh Queen’s post along with a nice looping cat image.

Twitter wrote: ‘It’s easy to express yourself by retweeting with a comment.

‘What if you could take it a step further and include media? Starting today, you can! retweet with photos, a GIF, or a video to really make your reaction pop.’

It added: ‘We find solutions to many challenges as we build for a global, vocal audience.’
